Welcome to my website!

I’m the author of the SAFFRON NIGHTS SERIES (e-Kensington), the EIGHT LAYS AROUND THE WORLD serial, and a contributor in THE LADY SMUT BOOK OF DARK DESIRES. I also write regional bestselling cookbooks and Agatha-award nominated traditional mysteries under my own name. On any given day, you may find me researching murder, sex, or cooking techniques. I’d not have it any other way.



These spicy romances take readers into a culinary terrain few travel. My adventurous characters are quirky, kick-ass, and not afraid of their sexuality. Think open-air food markets in Mexico, truffle hunting in Tuscany,  and musty aphrodisiac shops in Hong Kong.

“Loved the conflict between Maeve & Jackson. It wasn’t your typical I have eyes only for you &will touch no one else but you. It shows the multifaceted nature of the conflict of giving up one’s previous life to be with a person that you love. That was one of the most enjoyable aspects of the book.” Cocktails &  Books on SAFFRON NIGHTS.

“Liz Everly’s work is like that beautiful park in the traffic circle where food, sex, and exotic travel intersect.” –Alexa Day, author of “Illicit Impulse”


Brazil…Hawaii…India….As a food writer, Maeve has just been handed the hottest opportunity of her career. She’s being sent on an international research tour for an aphrodisiac cookbook. The downside is she’s got to travel with rock star photographer and womanizer Jackson Dodds. And the upside is she’s got to travel with Jackson Dodds. Because once they meet, Maeve understands why he’s been named “America’s Most Eligible Bachelor”—and despite her best intentions, all she can think about is putting their arousing recipes to the test…

Sexy and talented, Jackson can have any woman he desires. But lately, the thrill is gone—until he lays eyes on Maeve, who exudes sensuality like no one else. She’s determined to keep things professional, but he knows the attraction is mutual. And as they travel the world, sampling warming saffron, juicy papaya, silky avocado, rare herbs and teas—and a mushroom whose very aroma sends women to heights of ecstasy—both discover a hunger they’ve never known, and don’t want to resist, even amid unexpected danger…

THE LADY SMUT BOOK OF DARK DESIRES is an anthology from a group blog that I blog on every Tuesday.

My story in the anthology is BRENNA BANG’S IMMORTAL LONGINGS and it’s a HAWT, edgy vampire story, with a suspenseful twist or two. Stay tuned for more.


My first historical romance was just published by Tirgearr Publishing. TEMPTING WILL McGLASHEN.

Tempting Will McGlashen by Liz Everly - 500

“A few things always stand out for me with Ms. Everly’s writing.  It is always amazingly well crafted.  Words are like food ingredients – perfectly combined and arranged to create mystery, flavor and drama.  Characters have depth and dialogue is clever, pulling the reader in deeper to the suspense of the story and the passion of Jennifer and Gray’s romance.  And the sensuality of her character – unashamed of their sexuality – makes for highly enjoyable and intensely erotic moments peppering the storyline.  For those fans of multi-layered romances, contemporary and romantic suspense, Like Honey will tantalize your taste buds to be sure!” Guilty Indulgence blog

Like Honey

“Not only was TEMPTING WILL McGLASHEN a very good story, but the mouth watering meals Mathilde was cooking had my saliva glands working overtime. Which is not to say that this was any kind of cookbook but in my opinion it had a little bit of everything in it, making it a a very tempting morsel of literature. First and foremost I love history, any type and the early days of the Virginia frontier and early America to me are fascinating. Combining this with a sweet and lovely romance coupled with food served during those early days just made it ever so much more appealing.” Amazon review
